You have to turn the ignition on then apply steady pressure to the pedal (not pump) bleed right rear and then left rear.
turn ignition off and pump brakes 20-30 times.then turn ignittion back on and do right front and right left.-----------
There is a tool available to bleed the brakes at auto parts store. With the tool its very fast to bleed.A pressure bleeder attached to the master cylinder will work a lot better than foot bleeding. But it can be done with out tool also.The without tool procedure is as follows:----All wheels off/full master cylinder/ get person in car and do not start engine/right rear open bleeder screw and have person push pedal all the way down and hold it/tighten screw and let go of brake pedal/do again one more time/check master cylinder for level/make sure its full and do the left rear/the right front and the left front /keep master full. ---------------- Loosen the bleeder valve to purge the air from the wheel cylinder/caliper. Tighten the bleeder valve and slowly release the pedal.
Wait 15 seconds.
Be sure to check the master cylinder fluid level after 4-5 strokes to avoid running dry. all air is purged from the wheel cylinder/caliper.
NOTE: It may be necessary to repeat this sequence as many as 15 to 20 times per wheel. Fill the master cylinder to the proper level and replace lid.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

1998 chevy blazer when we replaced brake booster and now it will not shift out of park whenits started


Not sure I am following your question, or maybe questions.
If you can not shift out of park with the key on, the brake switch on the pedal may be faulty or out of adjustment.
If the warning light is on, it could be the fluid level sensor in the master cylinder, or the parking brake switch.
If you have no brakes after you try bleeding the master cylinder, the rod inside the booster may not be connected correctly. If you replaced the master cylinder along with the booster, you would need to bench bleed the master before installing it in the truck.

Bootscooters@my 1998 s10 blazer keeps wearing out pads on the left rear, after replacing both roaters and both sets of pads.


Sounds like u need to replace your brake caliper on that side. It's engaging but not totally disengaging causing it to wear so fast. Replace the caliper and brake pads and have your brake fluid flushed. At the end make sure they "bleed your brakes". then enjoy many happy miles on the road my friend. A good honest automotive repair shop will, bleed and flush the brake fluid for little to no cost. If your getting them to replace the caliper and pads.

Just changed rear disc pads and one caliper on 2001 Chevy Blazer...now rear brakes are not working at all...fluid is in lines as it comes out when bleeding...help!


the problem here is in order to bleed the brakes properly u need to have a special tool to open up the ABS high pressure pop-it valves, this special tool will be avail at the dealer or in a generic form at any well equiped front end shop, u just can't bleed the brakes without it, I see this same posted problem over and over, this information is correct, u will need a shop to bleed the brakes

1999 Chevy S10 Blazer 4x4. Replacing rear pad's,& Bleeding Breaks


have one person in the blazer pumping the brake pedal and then hold to the floor, crack the bleeder then tighten, release pedal, repeat till all air is out one side at a time, if this does not work then your ABS unit is bad witch if u follow your lines from your master cylinder u will find a black box with a motor on it, or the master cylinder itself is bad, it also can cause u to have no pedal, replace the master cylinder first, most likely cheaper.
